Latest News and Announcements
May, 2016: Ashton Flinders gave an outstanding and entertaining presentation at his Ph.D thesis defense (the first defense at GSO requiring 3D viewing glasses, I think). He has moved to Menlo Park, CA to take a position as the USGS Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow. Congratulations!
April, 2016: You can find out how seismic waves are attenuated across the U.S. in Bao et al. (GJI, 2016).
February, 2016: There have been numerous velocity models for the Tibetan plateau. How well do they predict seismic waveforms? The short answer: not so well. See a recent paper by Bao and Shen (JGR-Solid Earth, 2016).
December, 2015: A joint receiver function and surface wave inversion reveals the crustal and upper mantle velocity structure in the northeast Tibetan plateau (Zheng et al., GJI, 2015).
September, 2015: Gao and Shen (SRL, 2015) carried out a preliminary full-wave tomography of the structure from the JdF and Gorda spreading centers and the Cascadia volcanic arc.
